Ok please don't even try to straw man me

or this conversation will be over.

I never said the truth didn't matter; don't put words in my mouth. I said the truth doesn't matter in our society. If it did Ron Paul would be the President. If it really mattered, Edward Snowden would be getting the Medal of Freedom, and the NSA, CIA, ATF, DHS would all be dismantled.

I think your delusion is that if we just teach enough people from the ground up things will change. Well history tells us otherwise and that fight is much longer, much harder, and much more laden with challenge than trying to influence people from the top down like the totalitarians have been successful in doing for thousands of years. Both can work, but with the way people are you will never have success with one and not the other.

It's like this: give a man fish (pander) and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish (explain the idea) and he will eat for a lifetime.

More like:

If you give a man to fish he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime, become the lead fisherman and teach all men to fish and you create a community free of hunger.
